Remember the Blender party at the Pink Cow in Tokyo recently? (unfortunately we lost the post in the database-crash). One of the events was a VJ show by Blender artist Ekakiya and this show is now available on YouTube. Prepare yourself for an amazing ten minutes of video!
[ev type="youtube" data="LKM8W4WbrJE"][/ev] Direct link to YouTube.
The video also contains fragments of his work 'The Magic of Amelia', which was shown on the 2006 Cannes Film Festival but was never released on the internet (only on DVD). I thoroughly enjoyed this, even if the YouTube video quality isn't very good.
I am astonished. I cannot recall having seen such a diverse mix: cartoon, animation, clip art and numerous graphical effects. Did he exclusively use Blender for the editing and mixing? Amazing anyhow.
It was OK, but I didn't appreciate the oscillating images :(
A bit difficult to follow - Still impressive work if it was indeed all done in blender.
An art that was done in Blender - good!
Not the kind of Art, I like, but it was great :D
This is just amazing! I would love to see a tutorial about that kind of high-level use of the sequencer...
Awesome playlist too. Is anyone J-music savvy enough to know what's playing past the three minute mark? It reminds me of Japanese SNES-hacking band YMCK
By the way, if you want to watch 'The Magic of Amelia' as badly as I do, it's going to cost you roughly 41 dollars.
Proceed with caution. I don't know if amazon japan ships anything out of the country and furthermore be on the look out for the "read this page in english" links past the shopping cart.
Yeah.. unless someone feels like making a friend in japan, having them order it and having them mail it to you or flying over to japan to pick it up yourself... that film is impossible to get ahold of.
in my opinion, the poor video quality matches the poor quality of the video.
Awesome! And (mostly) awesome music, too. Is there a playlist available?
Thank you for the introduction!
And the Playlist is here.
1. Lovers of other [Shitdisco]
2. The time of the turning [Peter Gabriel]
3. Space Music [Sexy Synthesizer]
4. Far Out [Sexy Synthesizer]
mixed with "It's in Our Hands" at Vespertine Live [Bjork]
Sexy Synthesizer is on an independent label in Japan.
Oh. I know "It's in Our Hands" very well, but I didn't hear it. o_O
Thanks for the playlist, but I can't find the one Song I'm looking for. Are you sure that the 2nd song is "The time of the turning [Peter Gabriel]"? It does not sound like this: http://www.petergabriel.com/discography/release/OVO/160/
Maybe it's just a other part of the song? I mean the song that sounds a bit mediaeval (starting with pipes or something like that and using drums odr something at the end etc.).
Oh, it's "The Time Of The Turning (Reprise)/The Weavers Reel". ;)
wow, thats fucking amazing :D
So great !! , I like your work very much !! , you have find very cool ways to produce nice images , and created various crazy universe .
maybe sometimes I'm not so fan of flashing things , and sometimes I'd like to see things more clearly , there is too much layer superposed in my opinion (sometimes) , But I assume this is because of the VJ stylization of your work.
also you have a crazy/funny way of throwing quick and dirty videos, and just after that lauching a wonderfull masterpiece , and maybe it's just the VJ look too , personally I found this crazy/funny
Also the music is well chosen , and the image match well .
I've seen only a few images and one or two videos of yours before , so it's great to see more of your work.
congratulation for these ones !!
but now i'm wondering a few questions , do you use sound analyzing to produce video effects ?(I guess you don't) what is a realtime show ? , I can't even imagine a little bit that this was done in real time in blender . But maybe it's just a lack of knowledge , I've never came to make real time things in blender .
have you controlled real time effects during the show ?
By curiosity I'd like to know a little more of the technique behind this . But this is not so important , the result is much important .
keep on doing great things !!
